The maritime climate on Long Island is well-suited to the grapes grown in a similar climate - Bordeaux. That is - Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Malbec. Winemaking was first pioneered here in 1973 and has established itself as an exciting, rising star in the winemaking world. Brad Anderson represents the 2nd generation of this family-owned winery just two miles from the majestic Long Island Sound - and while his daughter may one day take the helm - for now you can find her poems gracing the labels. Sustainable
